Author has written 3 stories for Percy Jackson and the Olympians, and Virals.

Hi! Call me Char.

I'm a hot mess of an aspiring writer. I've been reading Fanfiction since I finished the Harry Potter series many thousands of moons ago. I tried my hand at writing the stuff, once before; the results were atrocious and embarrassing and just generally discouraging. I dropped my stories like hotrocks and haven't dared to look at 'em since.

Recently, however, I decided to adopt a fuck-it-why-not policy, and am dipping my toes back into the waters. I'll be starting with (shocker) a HP fic for the Marauders era (because who the fuck doesn't want to write discourse between Lily Evans and Sirius Black?!). If I like the results, and if I don't die first, I may continue beyond that, branch into other genres and fandoms and whatnot.

I won't ever promise you regular updates. I can promise you I will try, but I (unfortunately) have responsibilities in the real world that require precedence :( Life is too hectic and ambiguous to keep such a rigid schedule, and the only thing I hate more than empty promises are fanfic updates that are NOTHING BUT AUTHOR'S NOTES. So, if you don't hear from me for a spell, it's safe to assume I've been swallowed by my day-to-day and will get back to you as soon as I've excavated myself :)

Thanks for going along with my insanity - wording is hard, and your patience is much appreciated. I love what I do, and I do what I love, and your enjoyment is a beautiful bonus to that equation.

A PHILOSOPHY:

Every craftsman has a master.

I do not believe it to be at all possible for someone to succeed in their domain without drawing sources from those who came before them. In writing, my style is directly molded to my most recent source material. I feel it due course to provide for every chapter I write, source material. So, At the bottom of each post, I include two lines: a Currently Reading, and an Underlying Reference.

CR is the most recent book that I have read/am currently reading, and my writing style naturally reflects that absorption. CR is there to possibly provide answers if you're curious as to stylistic choices, or maybe even book suggestions if you like something I've tried out.
UR is a fic-long reference piece that I am consciously working alongside for stylistic pointers. More often than not, it is a series of books chosen to last me the duration of the fic, but its the book(s) I crack open to a random page to figure out how to word something if and when I get stuck.

Passive Aggressive Post-Its by quite-a-riot reviews
When a fateful encounter results in Lucy being linked to a complete stranger, she will have to find a way to live with (and maybe just love) the messy scribbler who seemingly shares her skin. Lucy can't help resisting the pull of fate, but when friends get involved, she doesn't stand a chance. Set where Earth meets Earthland, being a college freshman has never been quite like this.

Dauntless by HungryPeanut reviews
The Royal Military College was founded a few centuries ago and the traditional laws that were instaured at the time still remained. One of those laws stipulating clearly that only male students were allowed to apply for the formation. But here Lucy was, standing among the other recruits in the ranks, dressed as a man. Rated M for mature themes and later explicit content.

Slow Burn by stopnatsu reviews
It wasn't love at first sight. They didn't meet each other's eyes and melt on the spot; there were no fireworks when their hands brushed accidentally. No, it was never like that. Lucy and Natsu fell in love slowly. It wasn't sudden. It wasn't a sprint. No—Lucy and Natsu were a slow burn, an afterthought that gradually worked its way into both of their minds. NaLu. Oneshot.
